Please can anyone give me some ideas on how to stop the red hot burning Im experiencing on my bottom, the pain can be overwhelming sometimes.
As some of you know, I had the ileostomy reversal 5 weeks ago now. Im still really pleased I did it, but in the last week the sore bum started. Its got so bad now Im running out of ideas.
First I used a nappy cream the hospital sent me home with (doesnt work). Then I brought a stronger one called 'sudocrem' from the chemist (doesnt work). Then I brought an expensive spray from the chemist for piles (which I have not even got but the chemist said it would help but that doesnt work).Even painkillers have no effect.The only relief I get is to sit in the bath, up to 4 times a day, or put ice cubes on my bum (sorry to have to share that with you).
I wouldnt mind but since the reversal I dont get up in the night anymore more for the loo, Im kept awake because of my burning bum.
Any ideas will be more than welcomed.
